New Look Auditorium!
There have been a lot of changes at the theatre over the summer months. We've redecorated the auditorium and made way for brand new seats which are more comfortable, more stylish and more in keeping with the building.
The seating layout is slightly different too so seat numbers have changed. Please check the seating plan before selecting your seats. The seating plan can be found on the new season brochure available via a link on the Home page.
We've re-painted too. Many volunteers have spent many hours refurbishing and decorating. We hope you like it! Do let us know. We're also looking for new volunteers for all areas of the theatre. Read all about how you can help in the brochure.
